Published in June 9, 1999, issue

Jack Neary died Jan. 8, 1999. At Princeton, he was a member of Elm Club, captain of the fencing team, and on the pistol team. He graduated from Yale Law School in 1935 and married Rosalia Ingham that same year.

He practiced patent law in NYC until the outbreak of WWII, in which he served as captain. He became a partner in the law firm of Campbell, Brumbaugh, Free and Graves in NYC. He served in Korea, returning with the rank of major. Jack's wife died in 1972. According to our 50th reunion book, he retired that year to a life of leisure, Gott sei Dank!

He leaves a brother, Philip E. '37, sons John Michael and Robert Ingham, daughters Patricia Stewart and Shelia Prezzano, and 12 grandchildren, to all of whom the class extends its deepest sympathy. He was buried May 17, 1999, in Arlington Cemetery, with full military honors.
